The 2016 NFL Draft is finally here — and for the first time in years, the Raiders will have to wait to hear their name called by the commissioner.

With just the one pick in the first round, the Oakland Raiders sit at No. 14 — hoping to land an impact player that can improve upon what has already been a successful off-season.

Will they draft a defensive lineman? A linebacker? A defensive back? Or could they surprise everyone and grab an offensive playmaker?

With trades, excitement and disappointment surely around the corner for NFL fanbases, it's time for the 2016 Draft.

(Below is the full draft order of the first round, and if you scroll to the bottom you'll see our list of best available players, both of which will update as the night goes on)
